drbubb Posted February 7, 2016 Report Share Posted February 7, 2016 Makati Tips: Choosing a Condo to Rent (or to Buy) How to find, buy or rent the ideal Condo in Makati (When we have more members living in and near Makati, I plan to run a poll here) Meantime, I would like to ask those who are living in the Philippines to join the discussion. / You can Join GEI : HERE : see post #2 / To start with, We can talk about the ideal condo TO RENT. Later on, we can discuss the ideal condo TO BUY.. (only if we understand the needs of renters, can we make solid decisions about what to buy for investment.) There seem to be two main category of renters, those looking to use it as : + A Work Pad : Those who have another property, further away (in the provinces), and need a "pad" near their place of work, so that they can have an easier and shorter commute for each day of work. They may return to their provincial home on the weekend. Obviously, a work pad can be smaller, because the tenants only needs some clothes for work, and a place to sleep + A MAIN Home : Those whose only, or whose principle property will be the one that they are seeking to rent, and live in. I can also imagine that there will be many people, who will start out renting a WP (Work pad), possibly on a shared basis, and will later decide they want to live permanently in the Makati area, and will seek a (larger) Main home property. They will be seen as trading up from perhaps a studio to 1BR, or 2BR flat, For mass demand, absorbing all those small flats being built: There may also be young people who work in a call center, working peculiar hours (not 9am to 5pm) and have a home in the provinces where their parents life. These people may have a WP type flat, but want to live a "full" Life from it, while they are in Makati ========== LINK to here : http://tinyurl.com/Makati-TIPS Other notes- : soho-lay : both : mo-lay : weebly : ========== Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
